Vertex Nano 3D printer kit: compact, standalone, cheap.
As its name indicates, the Vertex Nano 3D printer is an ultra-compact model that benefits from the precision and ease of use of the well-proven larger Vertex model.

Thanks to recent technical advances, it produces quality, precise objects up to 8 x 8 x 8 cm, standalone and for a reasonable price. All you have to do is insert an SD card with the file of objects to be printed. Settings are easy to change with a rotary coder on a blue 4-line LCD (see other characteristics below).

The code of the AVR ATmega2560 is open-source.
